artists like to sing about being crazy -and over the christmas period their claims to insanity may be more valid. families can send you nuts.
chaka demus and pliers – love you like crazy
became a bit of a comedy reggae act in the 90s after a pointless cover of ‘twist and shout’.
corina – loving you like crazy
freestyle artist corina is still going strong – this track is from 1990.
dream – crazy
teenage girls do not make for a harmonious group – lineup changes led to their second album, ‘reality’, being shelved. a shame, as this, and some of the other tracks sounded a lot better than their debut.
five star – crazy
i loved this video, which followed the group as they rampaged through an empty fairground. very low budget ie classic 80s.
mark morrison – crazy
actually mark’s first single before ‘return of the mack’. is he in jail again? not heard from him for a while.
missy elliott and beyonce – crazy feelings
a restrained effort from beyonce here, thankfully. missy’s midtempo tracks are actually very good.
mj cole – crazy love
lushly produced uk garage, bound for the lounge rather than the club. vocals are by uk urban mainstay elisabeth troy.
musiq – halfcrazy
nice slow jam from the soulchild.
occasions – crazy world
gospel meets 90s r&b and the results are impressive.
paul davis – i go crazy
downtempo weepy later covered by jazz vocalist will downing.
trellini – crazy about you
90s girl trellini wasn’t hugely successful but her one and only album (i think) was nice.
yvette michele – crazy
yvette started off singing about being crazy about a dj, then just decided to be crazy. then decided to sing about a dj again…she only had one album.
